Embracing distractions in live virtual sessions

Monday 23rd NOVEMBER

13:30 – 13:45

Announcing Abhilash Purohit as a speaker at Gamification Europe 2020

Learners face a number of distractions in a virtual learning environment. The phone, email, app notifications, children, pets, parents, spouse, neighbours, traffic on the street outside, bad internet connection, nature's call... are all distracting them from a shared learning experience.

In searching for a solution, we built Dextr.io, developed the GPS framework, and learned a lot about distraction management. In my lightning session, I'll talk about how we developed a tool that empowers learners to manage distractions using the principles of Gamification, Personalization, and Socialization.

Thanks to our day sponsor
